Drive into the mountains brings stark reminders of Colorado’s September 2013 floods

Sunday, May 4th, 2014 3:27pm MST

We went for a drive through Estes Park and into Rocky Mountain National Park yesterday.  Always beautiful but now, a bit more dramatic for other reasons.  

The devastation from last year’s floods are still very visible and while much has done rebuilding, much more needs to be done.  Here you can see what is left of a car after being caught in the flood on Highway 34.  In the background, the collapsed hillside is seen and two construction vehicles work to rebuild the riverbank.

Piles of debris and rubble as still visible as you climb up the canyon.  While some houses have been rebuilt, others remain in pieces.
